It is hard to describe this one but it is basically home and garden. My dream is to build my own home with a small farm and vegetable garden so this blog is meant as a catch-all for all things related to that.

Specifically, I love farmhouse style design and decor with a homesteading vibe. That being said, do you know how HARD it would be to break into the farmhouse style niche? Especially if you don’t own your own home for beautiful lifestyle pictures.

I have a two-bedroom, one-bath apartment with a tiny galley kitchen. I can’t have any animals at home right now except my beta fish and my dog, but, this is my dream niche and I have found a few topics that will work until I start building my dream home.

So I call this one my home and garden site but technically it is a home building, home design, garden, homesteading, self-sufficiency, small farm kind of site. It’s going to be the next Better Homes & Gardens just wait and see!

It has been hard to get into building this site, though, because I do know the barrier to entry will be hard. I started this site with a brand new domain name in June of 2019. Here are the stats:

October Notes

October 2019 traffic really spiked! This was really neat to see as the site is just hitting 5 months old. Most of this traffic is to just two posts. Even so, it is an inspiring uptick!

As of the end of October, this site is still not using Pinterest or social at all.

April

Hi, my name is April, and I have a domain name problem. I think of an idea, I buy a domain name, and sometimes I build a website for it. That's what happened on this site, and for all of the other ones I talk about here. I'm not an expert but I'm happy to share what has worked for me!
